Best Running Store
Village Runner is a specialty running store offering a vast selection of running shoes for the elite marathoner to the weekend walker. Apparel and accessories are also available at the store’s two local locations.
The highly-trained staff at Village Runner can help any runner select the appropriate shoe, help with injury prevention and suggest proper energy supplements.
For over a decade, the Village Runner has also been promoting and sponsoring running events throughout the South Bay including the Village Runner 4th of July Run where more than 3,000 participants begin their Independence Day festivities in a healthy manner. Portions of the proceeds from the 4th of July Run have gone to the Redondo Beach Firefighter’s Community Relief Fund and the Redondo Beach Police Department’s D.A.R.E. program.
